Tekedia predicts that RIM, the maker of BlackBerry, will be acquired within the next 24 months. You might have noted the latest, which we ran in the last few hours.
BlackBerry maker Research In Motion has hired law firm Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP to work out a restructuring plan that could include selling assets, seeking joint ventures or licensing patents, people briefed on the matter said.
As part of the struggling Canadian smartphone maker’s strategic review, the RIM board is discussing ways to boost revenue from its new BlackBerry 10 operating system and possibly opening up its proprietary network, the sources said.
At one point, RIM was hoping to add as much as $4 billion in revenue from deals with major telecom carriers, sources said.
What do you think? Do you think RIM will make it past 2014? We do not think so.
